Everyone wants their home to be beautiful and well-decorated, but it’s no secret that furniture and home decor are almost always overpriced. At No Place Like Home in Boulder, we understand that not everyone has a million-dollar budget, and that’s why we offer an incredible selection of used furniture and home decor at prices you can afford. We’ve been in business since 1986, and in the time we’ve been open, we’ve received quite a few questions about our inventory. We felt that this was the perfect opportunity to write a post answering some of the most common questions people ask about used furniture.
We know that we can’t answer every question in one blog entry, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to our used furniture store in Boulder if your question isn’t answered here. You can also stop by to see our amazing selection of recycled furniture if you’d prefer in-person communication!
Common Questions About Used Furniture
Do I need to assemble the item myself?
Furniture assembly is a task that is either loved or loathed. In our experience, most of our customers fall into the latter camp. We can’t say that we blame them — assembling furniture is time-consuming and difficult, even when you have an instruction manual in front of you.
At No Place Like Home, we see our customers as more than a paycheck. We’re committed to helping you enjoy your furniture from the moment you purchase it, and part of that commitment is helping you out with the assembly process. When you purchase recycled furniture from us, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you won’t have to put the item together on your own.
Do you accept any recycled furniture?
No, we do not accept any piece of furniture that is brought to our store. As we mentioned above, we’re committed to providing everyone who walks through our doors with high-quality pieces, and that commitment is rooted in a highly selective purchasing process. Every piece you find in our showroom has been thoroughly evaluated for quality craftsmanship, materials, and defects.
How do I consign my furniture or home decor?
Consigning and selling your gently used items through No Place Like Home couldn’t be easier. Whether you’re looking to get rid of a single framed print or an entire room’s worth of furniture, we’re always willing to take a look.
Start by taking high-quality, well-lit photos of the item you want to consign. If you have multiple items, you can group them together as long as each piece is visible. Send us the photo(s) via email or text:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Text: 720-551-4241
You can also bring your pictures directly to our store.
Once we’ve approved your furniture for consignment, we’ll reach out to you to either pick the furniture up from your home (pricing depends on the number of items and the size) or schedule a time for you to drop the items off yourself.
Each item we consign is limited to 70 days in our showroom. Our recycled furniture sells quickly, with most items being sold in fewer than 30 days. Any item that sits in the showroom for more than 30 days will be marked down 20%. We will reduce the price by another 20% after 30 more days. After 70 days have elapsed, we will either have you pick the item up, have it delivered to you (fees apply), or donate the item to a charitable organization for no extra charge.
As we mentioned above, we anticipate most of our inventory selling quickly. We will write you a check for 50% of the final price once your item has sold!
Can you help me with a warranty claim?
Yes! We know that while warranties can be great, they’re also difficult to resolve. If you purchase recycled furniture from No Place Like Home and need to file a warranty claim of any kind, just get in touch with our team. We will help you resolve the claim with the manufacturer as quickly as possible. It’s just one more reason why we believe we’re the best used furniture store in Boulder!
